that desert island question
Laurie Anderson was asked the desert island question on the radio a few years ago, and she was pretty adament, her love Lou Reed (tres cool--Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed together) absolutely HAD to be able to go with her. Wouldn't talk to the interviewer unless he let her bring Lou along.
Then there was Tom Hanks in that movie, what did he have, a volleyball to talk to?
So I ask myself everyday, what would I need on a desert island? Scenario one: my little boat reaches the island with the wife and pets and a load of canned pineapple and veggie chili. Scenario two: I land on the island with NOTHING. Hmm.
I'll answer both. In scenario one, where I have my nearest and dearest with me, and plenty of food? I'd have to have a weekly subscription to the New Yorker. A little airplane flying by every Friday, dropping a parachute with my magazine in it.
Scenario two? Give me my leatherman. it can DO IT.
YOUR turn---take either scenario or both and tell us your desert island necessities? What one thing?
